Need to kill some time before kick off. How about a debate around top 5 QB's? Here's my go......

1. Joe Montana
2. Dan Marino
3. Peyton Manning
4. Steve Young
5. Johnny Unitas

Any thoughts?

Kurt Warner would be in my top 5

Surely the top 4 can't all come from the recent past. When did the NFL begin?

The National Football League was founded in 1920 under the name American Professional Football Association. The name was changed to National Football League in 1922.

Always difficult on this to go back too far as I certainly wasnt watching pre the 1980's!

Peyton 'Golden media boy' Manning

He's useless.

Roger Staubach and Bart Starr deserve a mention as well ... played in the days before the West coast offence but both called all the plays and did not have an offensive coordinator picking the plays.

Surely Tom 'Three Rings' Brady is much better.

also Fran Tarkenton needs consideration.... agree about Joe being tops though

Simms? Bullwinkle ... are you from NY ...
By:

I was a huge Simms fan..... but there is no way on this blue and green planet he is one of the best 5 of all time :^0
By:

When: 24 Jan 10 17:21
No...Im not from NY but I always admired Simms as a QB and playing in NY all that time. Sports Illustrated called him the most underrated QB of all time and I would go with that. I never saw Unitas other than on tapes and documentaries but you have got to admire him - a real tough man

K Warner is 1.01 in top five.. if this guy had started earlier he would hold every record in the book and took 2 of the suckiest francises in recent history to the superbowl.

a total legend

it's the lack of pass rush thats helping sanchez too

Impossible to rate Tarkenton, unitas etc. Since channel 5/ Sky coverage started

1. Montana- most complete but helped by having Jerry Rice
2. Elway- the best when the *****were down
3. Brady- you won't like it but he is the iceman: helped by a great all round team
4. Favre- did it in a weaker team and look at the durability
5. Young- learned it from Montana but still great all rounder

Sorry: Manning and Marino are too one dimensional and rely on really good receivers and/or offensive lines

The usual suspects voting for Manning, and in the process showing their lack of NFL acumen.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned Terry Bradshaw on this thread probably not one of the great pure passers but four rings says all you want to know about his ability to manage a game. I think to be a top 5 quarterback you must call your own games.

Troy Aikman? Might as well include Jeff Hostetler, Ryan Leif and Kyle Orton

amazed favre is in so few of these lists. the durability, the consecutive games streak, the fact he's still doing it at forty. like him or not, surely an all-time great.
By:
Ace High
When: 24 Jan 10 22:39
An all time great, but 2 superbowl appearances (1 win) on the teams hes been on....not good enough..without even mentioning the INT's.

no mention of tom brady?
By:

Sharp post Max.

The disrespect shown to Brady this season has been embarassing to all true NFL fans. A 4000+ yard season after a potential career ending injury and the guy gets no respect.

Football outsiders had him as the number 1 rated QB with strength of schedule factored in.

If the pats had the colts D this year theyd be odds on for the title at this stage. Fact.

1. Montana
2. Marino
3. Elway
4. Favre
5. Young

Am too young to have seen Unitas, Namath or Tarkenton.
